I just completed my 4th stay in Costa Rica as a student at CRLA, as my job only allows limited vacations. I found CRLA on the internet, it was a leap of faith that has turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. I cannot find much to improve on their school, it runs perfectly and each trip is a fun experience. I think their staff is the secret, everyone there is working to make sure you are comfortable and getting the services you need and expect. My host family has become a part of my life now, I feel like a part of their extended family. My teacher, Paola is perhaps the best teacher I have had in my life ! She never stresses me, we work together on my skills and she has dozens of fun teaching methods and props. There are many things to see and do, as a group or as an individual in the San Jose area. The beaches are wonderful, clean and beautiful. If you have children and want to make Spanish a part of their success, please consider CRLA. Their attention to safety is comforting, but I have found Costa Rica to have very little crime. It is safer than most of the US. I'll say in closing, I'm lucky to have found CRLA, lucky to have such a wonderful host family, lucky to have such a dedicated teacher and lucky to have so many friends in Costa Rica.
